Imagine my delight!

So, as many of you know, my computer has problems. ESPECIALLY my Microsoft Word. (Grrrr.) Anyway, today I learned that good things can come from malfunctioning software. In a nut shell, if I want my Word to work properly, I have to open two files from My Documents, my WiP and then a random one,…
